Uncertainty remains the guiding force in the United Kingdom, as Brexit rumbles into its fourth year of dominating the discussion. Where this leaves business, specifically the hotel and hospitality industry, was the main subject at the UKHospitality Summer Conference.

Stephen Cassidy, SVP and managing director for the U.K. and Ireland at Hilton, said two mega-trends - the requirement for experiences and the continued desire to travel - bode well for the country’s hospitality industry.

Cassidy said inbound travel due to favorable exchange rates still props up London hotels, driving demand among both business and leisure travelers, but the domestic market feels threatened, which is a real concern for regional markets mostly dependent on weekend bookings.
